RE: question 5

Q: What was the choice-of-law rule asserted by the railroad?

A:Erie advocated that the choice of law rule should be Pennsylvania law,
and under that law, persons who use pathways along the right of way are
deemed to be trespassers and that the railroad is not liable for
injuries to undiscovered trespassers resulting from its negligence.
